Additional and ongoing home learning includes:
Maths challenges and activities will be set for the children to complete on My Maths later in the academic year. If you need a reminder about your child’s log in details please come and see us.
Please help your child to learn pairs of numbers that make 10 so that they can quickly be recalled. Then do the same for pairs of numbers to make 20. This work underpins much of our maths work in class. Consequently it is very important that this is constantly revisited and practised throughout the year.
Addition and subtraction of small numbers can be practised and reinforced by playing simple board games such as Snakes and Ladders using two or even three dice. Card games such as Pontoon or ‘Making 21’ also work well to support addition and counting on skills.
Also, please practise counting forward in jumps of 2, 5 and 10 to help learn the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Then try counting back in jumps of 2, 5 and 10. Then do the same for the 3 and 4 times tables.
Please listen to your child read at home as much as possible and comment in their home reading records when you do so.
Please continue to read and enjoy lots of additional texts with your child. Reading and listening to a variety of different text types are so important not only to support your child’s reading development but also their writing development.
Please see additional information regarding supporting your child with their reading skills, particulalry comprehension, in the section further down the page.
The spelling lists document (attached below) includes a list of words for each week. These are words that we will practise reading and spelling during the week at school. You may wish to help your children to practise spelling these words at home .These are words that the children need to be able to spell as part of the Year 2 spelling curriculum.
